The New York Knicks have officially released forward Isaiah Roby and swingman Jaylen Martin, as confirmed by the team.

Isaiah Roby, aged 25, joined the Knicks on the last day of the 2022/23 regular season.

Prior to this, he had spent most of the season with the Spurs, playing in 42 games and averaging 4.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in 11.3 minutes per game before his release in early March.

Roby had previously spent his first three NBA seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Jaylen Martin, who was undrafted from the Overtime Elite League, signed a two-way contract with the Knicks during the summer.

With Martin’s departure, the Knicks now have an available two-way contract slot, as the others are currently held by Nathan Knight and Dylan Windler.

During the preseason, Roby participated in two out of three games, averaging 8.0 points per game and 2.5 rebounds. Martin, on the other hand, made a brief three-minute appearance during the preseason.

Notably, neither player had guaranteed salaries for the current season, so these roster moves do not incur costs for the Knicks.

The team’s roster is now comprised of 19 players, with 12 of them having fully guaranteed contracts.
